Southern Tier Pumking is an annual favorite among the fall beer lovers, who anxiously await its arrival. This year, the Imperial pumpkin ale comes to us not in 22oz bombers, but in 12oz 4packs – a change that perhaps will make imbibers more open to sharing the goods.
Pumking is an ode to Púca, a creature of Celtic folklore, who is both feared and respected by those who believe in it. Púca is said to waylay travelers throughout the night, tossing them on its back, and providing them the ride of their lives, from which they return forever changed. Brewed in the spirit of All Hallows Eve, a time of the year when spirits can make contact with the physical world and when magic is most potent. It is thought that we harness this magic to brew our powerful pumpkin ale. Not so, but it is with great respect to the magic of their trade that our brewers produce this fine beer with entrancing spicy aromas. Take a whiff of this complex ale and your journey has just begun. At first sip, a mystical spell will bewitch your taste buds, yet another victim enraptured by the Pumking. 8.6% ABV
